Guests arriving at the starkly modern Herzog & de Meuron-designed Parrish Art Museum for its annual gala on July 12 were greeted by transgender performance artist Richard Move and his troupe of fellow transgender (I think!) performers. Part modern dance, part fashion show, and one part just odd (the ledge pictured was decorated with what I thought were huge horseshoe crab shells made to appear as if they were attacking, but a closer inspection made me think they were plants.
Who cares? It was colorful and odd and enjoyable on the outside deck—the weather was so nice guests didn’t race to get into the air conditioning— and equally entertaining.
